It makes sense. Mud walls will cave in eventually and flood the land. Mostly with rubbish last time I looked in the canal on the WB.

It seems odd though why they are doing this after all these years. Maybe the coving is just being laid in a soon to be key area. 🤔

On one of my last walks over there I saw a load of these stacked at various intervals along one canal, the only machine I saw close by was a long reach JCB, the same they use for dredging the canals, and seeing this embankment walling it would make future dredging difficult in my oppinion, but this is Egypt, so let's do the expensive job today and discover we can no longer keep the canal system clear of weeds and debris later.

Cheers Dusak, although Nick has been there for 2 months he has not taken any pictures.
The pictures depicted have been taken by Pop up Walks and one can see my problem.

As I have said to Nick, why should I worry about a situation I can do nothing about.
It's Egypt, I'll worry about it when I'm there. Who needs stress ?.... 8)

Ps: Anyhow I passed over ownership to him over 3 years ago, his turn to worry...

I posted this on the Facebook group, I don't know if it helps with part of your question.

Luxor completes the canals lining project.. The plan includes lining about 338 km at a cost of 1.4 billion pounds

Luxor Governorate is working in full swing daily on projects of the presidential initiative "A Dignified Life", which is the national project for the development of Egyptian villages under the auspices of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi. Rehabilitation and lining of canals and drains is one of the most important national projects launched by President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi in all governorates of Egypt, which contributes to rationalizing and reducing water losses that are wasted in the water network, in order to achieve a saving in irrigation water of about 5 billion cubic meters annually.

Form his part, Engineer Asaad Mostafa, advisor to the governor of Luxor for national projects and supervisor of the "Decent Life" initiative, says that Luxor Governorate is working in full swing and with special attention to implement 23 lining rehabilitation operations that it started on September 10, 2020, with all works to be completed on August 31, 2022. The total lengths required to be implemented 435,575 km with a financial appropriation of 1,442,80042 thousand pounds, and the total lengths implemented in km from the beginning of the project until September 2021, about 206.136, where 8 canals were completed by 100%, which are Al-Ziniya canals with a length of 0.750 km, and the mountain canal from Mouth To the end, under the control of the Water Resources and Irrigation Engineering in Armant, with a length of 8,450 km, Al Salamiya Al Qibli Canal with a length of 8.614 km, Al Salamiyah Marine Canal with a length of 8.66 km, and Sahel Al-Shaghb Canal, 4,300 km, Al Jabal Canal with Esna Engineering, with a length of 2,650 km, and Al Kayman Canal with a length of 2,830 km; The coastal canal is 5,650 km long.

No special machines. Just a JCB and a concrete mixture. Lots of labour involved, but they seem to have been completing sections quite quickly.
